While many people are terrified of spiders, most don't actually think a spider could beat them in a fight, but the Mentos Spider Swiper game will put you to the test.

The confectionery company Mentos recently released a funny ad showcasing a guy getting his butt kicked by a spider. The brand subsequently received requests from fans who wanted to try their hand at fighting such an arachnid; thus, the Mentos Spider Swiper game was born.

Created in collaboration with the Martin Agency, the creepy crawly combat game is an iOS app that has players fighting six different spiders, all of which look astoundingly realistic. The primary way to "fight" the spiders is by swiping your finger across your tablet or phone screen. Try it out by downloading it at Apple's App Store.
